Managing ERP Extensions

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Navigate to: Admin > Extension Engine > ERP Connector-level

The ERP Connector is a tool of integrating separate, stovepipe ERP systems with each other or with other enterprise information resources, to meet various B2B demands. Fresh out-the-box Znode supports ERP systems such as:

  • SAP

  • Epicor

  • Infor

  • JDE

  • MSDynamics

  • SAGE

  • ABS

  • Mock ERP

  • QuickBooks

The ERP Connector in Znode is essentially a notification process to let Vendors know details about an Order. For example, Znode supports the following Vendor Notification Types:

  • Emails: Used to send emails to particular suppliers during the checkout process.

  • Web services: Used to invoke any kind of web service for particular suppliers during the checkout process.

These pre-built extensions require customization as different businesses can have different requirements for ERP.

Creating custom ERP Connector is easy, yet very powerful because it allows users to integrate the Checkout and Order fulfillment process with any Vendor from the supply chain.

Example: You have a vendor who needs to know the quantity ordered every time their products have been ordered. You can create your own supplier web service type, named something like “VendorSupplierService”, which invokes a remote web service at the vendor to pass them the product and quantity information.
